There are 211 plots at the community garden. They’re so popular there is a waitlist.

The eight-and-a-half acre Legacy Garden in Charlottetown is one of the biggest urban gardens in Canada.

The first eager gardens are already out, and those numbers are just going to grow as the temperature rises.

Legacy Garden manager Leah Collett said there’s no such thing as a typical user.

“It’s everybody. It’s young families, it’s, like I said, newcomers to Canada. It’s seniors. I have seen babies out here.”

Jeananne MacLean and Lester Dodsworda have been coming to the garden for nearly a decade each.

They packed up seeds to give away to other gardeners — they say they’re paying it forward.

“The people were so friendly,” said Lester Dodsworda. “When you come in, if you needed help, they were right there to help you, and that meant a lot to me.”

Other visitors at the garden are planting for food or a pollinator garden, like MacLean, but it’s more than that.

“It’s spiritual, you know?” said MacLean. “It’s so calm, and so, just good. Just good.”
